Muslim Mechanics: The View from Behind the Curtain by Charles H. Brewton is the singular book anyone needs to read for them to understand Islam. Unlike anything I have read on Islam, this book answers the question: Why do Muslims do what they do? The author takes readers through history, examining the animosity between Sunni Muslims and Shiite Muslims, the cultural, historical, political, and religious implications of the Sharia Law as well as the rules and governing laws that Muslims follow. The book explores the expansion of major religions — Christianity, Islam, and Judaism — while offering a compelling comparison and what creates the differences between these religions. In this book, readers will discover the links between Islam and the Bible, get insights into the Qur’an, find a compressive examination of the core Islamic beliefs, and a lot more.
Muslim Mechanics: The View from Behind the Curtain by Charles H. Brewton is both eye-opening and informative, a book that explains what happens in Islam, from their fundamental laws to sharia finance, from Islamic democracy to growth and market share. The author identifies the key stakeholders and players in the Islamic organization and makes predictions for the future. The writing is fluid and confident and Brewton provides fascinating details that give color and life to a dazzling portrait of Islam explored in this book. There are numerous historical and social commentaries that provide context for the work. Brewton comes across as an expert on the growth and exposure of major religions and this book is a powerful tool for anyone, especially Westerners, who want to understand the inner workings of Islam and its structure. Muslim Mechanics: The View from Behind the Curtain is extensively researched and intelligently written.
